"This is a well-written chronicle of 28 months when the world went slightly mad"

This is a well-written chronicle of 28 months when the world went slightly mad, largely because of a chemical formula — and a charismatic professor who was convinced that it could bring a planetary spiritual awakening. He was influential, though. It’s fascinating to discover that Steve Jobs started working on computers after dropping acid at Leary’s old college.

I’d love to see the authors subject the wizard of Apple Inc to their brand of madcap narrative and sly subversion.
